Yet another ice cream cafe entering the scene, The Milky Way. This ice cream cafe is located at Tanglin Halt. Among the old traditional shop, in the centre is this modern looking cafe.
The cafe specialises in homemade ice cream. There are waffles, tea and coffee served as well. Each week they rotate their various different flavours. It has a very homely feel in the design. For the menu, click here.
I was informed by the crew that their signature is the Pistachio but I was never a fan of Pistachio so I skipped this totally. I tried a few flavours before settling for the Strawberry Cheesecake. In general, the ice cream is on the sweeter end. Somehow, this is one other ice cream that has a sweet distinct taste separated from its flavour. Not sure why. The first I tried was Earl Grey. I find the Earl Grey too strong and so much so till it tasted a little artificial. Next was Hazelnut, I didn’t like it either.
Finally the Strawberry Chessecake was to my liking. As the sour strawberry helps to balance out the sweetness.
The Milky Way is a good addition to this sunset neighbourhood. It will certainly add some vibes. As for the ice cream, I think there is room for improvement.
